It's been 45 years since the break-in at the Watergate Office Complex in June of 1972. Initially it was viewed as just another attempted burglary. But it grew into a scandal involving high-profile figures close to the White House. Consequently, Richard Nixon was forced to resign. VOA Russian's Rafael Saakov visited the Watergate hotel and the Washington Post whose journalists played key roles in the investigation.
